    My Audi went bang!

    Well, as the title says, my A4 went bang. I had a B6 2.0 Fsi and the timing jumped a tooth so the engine just died. It's gone to scrap heaven now! As a result I have two spare items Fuel filter - Free just pay postage DRL's - These are the DRL's that replace the fog grilles, look OEM. RRP is...

    Another A4... whoops!

    So I'm supposed to be buying a newer car, but this A4 came along and was too much of a good deal. Needs new control arms and ARB c links (any recommendations on cheapest place to get them? A 14 year old car doesn't need Audi genuine parts I feel!) I'm also sorting the clutch, thinking of going...

    New CV joint required

    I need new CV joints, no problem. However I'm having issues sourcing the correct CV joints, by the looks of it Audi changed the CV joints in March 2003, well officially for the A4 anyway, however mine is a Cab, supposedly manufactured in Sep 2002 (which I believe it was). However, being the Cab...

    If you were to buy another A4, what engine would you go for?

    Thinking of chopping in my A4, it's beautiful and I love it, but I do 500 miles a week, and in a 2.4 it's fairly brutal on the wallet, thinking maybe going for a Tdi or the 1.8T ?

    Water on inside of boot lid under carpet

    Happy Sunday all! So yesterday I swapped out my radio antenna booster, in the hope that I might get some better reception. Time will tell if I do. Downside is that I noticed water droplets on the inside of the boot lid, this is likely just condensation but it seems rather silly considering that...

    Why do you own a B6?

    I'm curious, what is it that makes you own a B6? The reason I say this is because whilst my car had a misfire the Mrs gets in my earhole about buying a newer car as I've had "so many problems" (as she puts it). I've actually had two, a misfire and a coolant leak, which I don't consider that...
